I hope somebody can give me some insight what the problem is, I have had 2 carpal tunnel surgeries,1 Ulner nerve decompression and upper Condile release, all to the right arm, I am awaiting surgery on my left,I also had my right wrist Debreedment, OK here goes, about 2 weeks ago I could not even lift my Right arm for shoulder pain, that has now gone into the top of my forearm, the shoulder still hurts not as much, but my upper forearm has a steady burning type pain that has me crying sometimes, of course i go into the bathroom for that it is even sore to the touch, that pain you get when novacain is being shot in your body that type pain just steady, I told my doctor and he just says nothing I think he feels he can't do anything but, if my nerve is damaged that he moved could it be that?:eek::confused::(

  • Have you had any blood tests or x rays or scans a description of your pain is not much for us to go on There is a condition called RSD, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy you can read this and see if you have any similarities http://arthritis.about.com/od/rsd/a/rsd.htm

It is REALLY unfortunate that acupuncture is not covered as it should be in the US...it could very well have prevented some of the surgeries you had:(. Best wishesDOM
